Stride4Life is our annual charity event with sponsored walks and Fun Day. It is held on the 2nd Sunday in July in the grounds of Darent Valley Hospital.

Stride4Life has raised over £460,000 since it started in 2004.

Run almost entirely by volunteers, led by Joan Warwick MBE, all the proceeds all go to support our  Cancer Fighting Fund

There are three Stride4Life sponsored walks:  

  • Darenth Stride: a 5 mile walk around the old hospital and wooded area.  
  • Warwick Walk: a 2 mile walk around the park adjacent to Darenth Country Park. 
  • Woodgates Stroll: a short walk on concrete pathways around the hospital grounds (suitable for wheelchairs).

Family Fun Day starts from 12pm with FREE ADMISSION and FREE PARKING.

Aims of Stride4life

  • To provide a family day out with something for all ages through our Fun Day, celebrating and remembering the life of a loved one, and celebrating a recovery and giving thanks for a saved life.

  • To engage the local community with so many people volunteering their time to a good cause.

Volunteer support

There are over a 100 volunteers who make this event possible, by coming along on the day and helping set up, run stalls, marshalling the walks, managing the PA System and helping to clean up the field at the end of the day.
